A 3D Train Model Can Tell The Great Train Story Any Way You Like The Journey Is Yours

When I was a kid I loved model train sets. My best friend and I built one in his garage. It had a ton of detail, and told a story of the golden days when trains ruled our means of transportation. This was a vintage set. And expensive, so we built it over time. A 3D train model can tell your story of a world and a time long forgotten, one that is mysterious, and at the same time almost frightening, and won’t be expensive. The 3D train models below is a great example of a more Dystopian train future.

Train 3D models can have lots of character, and would look great as the haunted train, or train to nowhere, or the train to hell at the end of the tracks?

“A 3D train model can tell a story about our magnificent past, or our uncertain future:”

Parkside Passenger Car

3D train models don’t get any better than the Parkside train car.

This passenger car has been forgotten in time. Perhaps it is lost in the mist on an old unused track, beside of a ghost town. Perhaps some passenger never go off?

The rusty Parkside Passenger Car is in a state of ruin and decay. But something is glowing inside. Would you be brave enough to go inside to see what it is?

This model has so much character it can help you tell many stories in your 3D train illustrations, animations, and art.

This set includes a Passenger Car 3D model, split into several pieces for ease of use, and a detailed tiling track section.  Put this beauty in your 3D ghost town, or Dystopian backdrops, in the desert, or badlands. (The Parkside series of 3D model trains is in, my view, a complete series, and in most cases you will need to get required products for the add-ons)

Vandalized Parkside Passenger Car

This 3D model train is vandalized, as part of the deep texturing that tells a story of tome passing. This is a texture add-on for the Parkside Passenger Car 3D model.

These textures are very detailed to tell a story of the dark side of progress.

Parkside Freight

3D model trains like the Parkside series tell a story of travel, of how the nation was built, and how the nation has changed, or is in a state of decay. This is another abandoned Freight train, which might be hiding a secret cargo?

Model train 3D Parkside Cargo train has a nicely detailed 3D train exterior, and it has  a simple interior. You get three parts, with multiple figure groups to allow customization. Customization is always good, because it adds to the versatility of the model.

By now you are probably seeing a pattern here. These trains fit together, and Parkside Cargo is designed to complement the Parkside Freight pack

Parkside JTC Logistics

Train 3D model Parkside JTC Logistics is another texture add-on for the 3D Parkside Cargo and Parkside Freight trains.

This is a sweet looking 3D model trains download. Add it to the Parkside train collection.

Parkside Haulage

This is a cool 3D Parkside Haulage hopper and flat loader. I like this set. It just looks cool.

The sets are split into several sections and both include preload presets.

The BorderLine

Trains will always be around, whether they are old, forgotten, and haunted, or they have been built to haul cargo into the future. the BorderLine set is a glimpse into the near future, where steel horses still run on rails. This set can also be used for a Dystopian world. A lot of good things are included…

You might need one of these 3D figures to go with the model set:
